Case Study: Triton Omnicare Design Electric Thermostatic Shower for multi-generational housing

Chelmer Housing Partnership (CHP), based in Chelmsford, Essex, is a not-for-profit housing association which offers over 10,500 affordable homes and sheltered schemes. Locally managed, CHP adapts properties to cater to all residents’ needs, including shower systems which suit multi-generational households.

Taking this into consideration, Triton’s Omnicare Design Electric Thermostatic Shower was specified, thanks to its thermostatic temperature control and simplistic design. To help those with impaired sight, the product features audible feedback, as well as a tactile temperature dial with soft grey tones for intuitive usability. This ensures that the unit is easily operated by all, while at the same time protecting the end-user, making it ideal for vulnerable occupants.

The Omnicare range caters to different residents with the inclusion of controls that allow a maximum temperature to be set to ensure a comfortable and safe experience.  A soft press start/stop button and looped lever handle is also included to enable low resistance operation, as well as coming with the reassurance of BEAB Approval and the BEAB Care mark.

In addition to the benefits to occupants, Triton’s shower system is a cost-effective and easy-to-install choice. David Hutchings, Supply Chain Manager at Chelmer Housing Partnership, said: “When adapting showering facilities for multi-generational households where children, elderly or vulnerable residents may be living, their safety is our number one priority. However, at the same time, aesthetics and ease of use are of course also important, providing a space that is visually appealing as well as secure.

“In our experience, Triton’s Omnicare range ticks all of these boxes, providing added reassurance for the safety of those who are most vulnerable.

“With the environment in which we install showers often involving elderly and vulnerable people, having a reliable supply chain is essential to ensure we always have access to a safe solution. Due to the trusted service Triton provides, it is our top choice for showers, and its Omnicare products have become instrumental in our refurbishment and maintenance programmes – particularly across our schemes supporting elderly residents.”

Stuart Lane, Trade Sales Director at Triton, said: “At Triton we understand the importance of high quality, reliable solutions that are built to last. We are committed to providing our customers with the ideal system to suit their project, with our dedicated customer experience team available to deal with any queries along the way. In addition to this, we manufacture all our showers in Britain and maintain stock levels carefully to ensure customers have access to what they need, when they need it.”
